    George, we are an online retailer for TWP and we personally do not have a dealer in your area. Not sure how we can help but shipping to your area takes 2-4 days normally but we cannot guarantee by Wednesday.

    Sheri, you must remove the failed stain first before applying the TWP. You can apply 2 coats wet on wet with the twp. About 15 gallons will be needed.

    Chris J, use the Restore A Deck Stain stripper followed by the brightener for the prep. If needed, sand off any remaining stain. Stain with TWP 1500. best to apply by stain pad or brush. it can be sprayed but you will need to back brush the stain for uniformity.

    1. About 10-12 years old
    2. Pressure treated pine-old type not ACQ
    3. Fair
    4. Yes Home Depot Behr Premium Transparent weatherproofing wood finish natural applied 3-4 years ago.

    The deck is 14 X 20 in size, the current stain is staring to wear off and there are some spots on the deck boards that are bare and starting to gray. Which product is best to strip off the old stain and brighten the wood? Would TWP 1500 be the best choice? Do you need a special tank sprayer to apply it or will any garden sprayer work? Can you use a power sprayer like the Wagner Control Spray Double Duty spray gun?

    Viking Hedberg, prep the deck with the Gemini Restore Kit. Strip the garage to remove the SW stain with Restore A Deck Stripper. Stain both with TWP 1500 series.

    We built a 24X12 cedar deck and a stairway last summer that gets about 10 hours of sun on one side and less near the house. Did not stain last year to let age over winter, so it has never been stained.

    The wood has now just slightly grayed, but otherwise looks new.

    We also have a cedar garage put up 2 years ago and stained with Sherwin William-two coats. This is peeling in the sun.

    MTI, you do not want to over apply TWP. I would put a coat on now but probably start going very two years after this. Thicker stain is not better! Prep with a light pressure washing rinse and a good deck cleaner to remove any dirt but not to remove any of the stain.

    1. 1 year
    2. Redwood
    3. excellent
    4. stained once fence was installed. TWP1500
    5. I want to repeat putting TWP1500 on the fence every year up to five years. Then wait longer in between. Do I need to prepare fence before adding a fresh coat of TWP1500?

    Rod, yes all wood needs to be prepped properly before staining with the TWP.

    Dan, you need to remove all of the Sikkens of best results. You cannot put TWP on a different brand of stain and expect that it will be able to properly penetrate and adhere.

    1.5-2 years
    Cedar
    Great
    Previously stained with Sikkens Cetol SRD Cedar Tone
    The wood we are looking to stain/coat is a front porch on a home built in June 2011.

    We like the current natural cedar tone look, but it is starting to grey in spots where there is heavy traffic. (This is a porch to our front main door). We are located in Minnesota.

    Any suggestions on Type of stain to use and how much of the old stain we need to remove? or can we just reapply TWP stain over the current stain?

    Diana, the Thompsons will be very hard to remove since it was just installed and a water based acrylic. If you can get it off then you can use the TWP.

    Sue, not sure on the Sikkens. It could be both. You can use the TWP 1500 for this.

    i started to stain the arbor on my deck with Thompsons Water Sealer in cedar. I hate the color, too orange! The deck was installed last summer, pine pressure treated lumber. Can I remove the Thompsons, and then use your product?
